August 24, 2022

Listen to Katie speak on topics ranging from her Danish travels, to the birth of cohousing in America, to her professional training program.

On this episode I’m speaking with Katie McCamant, President at CoHousing Solutions. Katie brings the depth and diversity of her 35 years of experience as a developer, architect, and cohousing resident to benefit her clients.

She’s the coauthor of Cohousing: A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves, the book that introduced cohousing to North America, and more recently, Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities. She co-founded McCamant & Durrett Architects and The CoHousing Company with Charles Durrett.

In recent years, she started CoHousing Solutions as a development consulting firm to share best practices and systems for successful collaborative development. She works with urban, suburban and rural communities all across North America, helping them define and implement their development strategy and build the professional team they need.

She also founded the 500 Communities Program to train other professionals to work in this realm.

Katie lived for 12 years at Doyle Street Cohousing in the San Francisco Bay Area, and now lives at Nevada City Cohousing in the Sierra Foothills.
